Dream Levels (For Inception Fans)

There seems to be a lot of noise going on within the product page of this new Busted Tees T-Shirt. A bunch of Inception fans seem to think this shirt is inaccurate, while other really love it. Let’s try and see if we can break down the layers and see whether or not Dream Levels is in fact accurate or not.

Outer Layer (Reality): That’s where you and I are right now, assuming neither of us are sleeping and/or dreaming.

Layer 1 (Yusuf): This is where the initial dream takes place. Also, this is the dream that involves the longest free fall van dive ever in the history of movies and mankind. Yes, it was that long.

Layer 2 (Arthur): Layer 2 is the dream within a dream. Remember, it involved that very, very cool and gravity defying sequence in the hotel room and then elevator. Future Riddler was the guy ding all the work in this dream.

Layer 3: (Eames): Now it gets really complicated. This layer reflects the dream within a dream within a dream. It’s the icy snow fortress sequence. Tough guy Tom Hardy plays  huge role in this dream sequence.

Layer 4 (Limbo): Ah Limbo. I think this is the part of the movie in which many brains exploded. Seriously, when leaving the theater a lot of people talked about amazing the movie was and then quickly switched topics to how unbelievable confusing it was. Limbo was the place that Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) needed to go to in order to save Saito. Remember, Saito was really, really, really old.

So there you go. A quick examination of Dream Levels by Busted Tees demonstrates that it is theoretically correct. However, I could be totally wrong.

If you want it then go and pick it up now from Busted Tees for $15.99.

Found Item Jetset: The Goonies and Ferris Bueller

The Experiment Jetset phenomena rolls on with these two new tees from our friends at Found Item Clothing. Both shirts references characters from 80’s movies classics. In fact, The Goonies was one of those movies that I grew up watching – over, and over and over again. I remember the first time I watched it, my dad had rented a copy from a local video store when it was just released (I remember the sticker on the case proclaiming it to be a new release). At the time, I had no idea what or who the Goonies were. But once the film on the VHS tape started to roll, I was hooked. Goonies never say die!

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, the John Hughes classic from 1986 (a year after The Goonies was released), didn’t catch my attention until 2 or 3 years after it was originally released. From what I recall, I caught it on HBO. I might have been too young to appreciate the antics of Mr. Bueller, but my appreciate for him grew with every re-watch.

The 80’s, they were great.

Both Goonies and the Ferris Bueller’s Day Off T-Shirts are available now from Found Item Clothing for $21.95.

DeLorean Time Machine Schematic

In 1985 Dr. Emmett Brown invented a time machine out of a stock DeLorean DMC-12. Since then, interest in the DeLorean has remained as people try to recreate Doc Brown’s game changing time traveling device. This T-Shirt from 80’s tees provides a glimpse into the inner workings of a Doc Brown tweaked DeLorean. Interested in making your own time machine out of a used DeLorean? This shirt is a great place to start. You can pick up the DeLorean Schematic tee from 80’s tees for an astoundingly cheap $20 (you’ll easily make up that money once you go back to 1998 and invest in a new and little known company known as Google).

And for you non-believers, here are a few more examples of this resurgence of interest in the DeLorean. The Los Angeles based streetwear brand, The Hundreds recently released these DeLorean tees to the small but loyal group of followers. In retrospect, The Hundreds popularity is astounding, might their unparalled popularity be due to them actually already owning a DeLorean time machine and having had gone back in time therefore gaining knowledge that their style of clothing would be in high demand in this day and age? We might never know.
